MCLE Reporting Attendance

Information for Members

Ideally, when you attend a live CLE activity, the sponsor of that activity will have received course accreditation from the WSBA, and will submit your attendance within 30 days of the end date of the event.

APR 11.6(a)(1) requires that the sponsor of each approved live program (or each live program for which approval is sought) must make available to each lawyer an MCLE Board attendance certification form.  This form is to be completed by WSBA lawyers taking the course to show the actual time spent by each lawyer in active attendance.  From these reports the sponsor will be able to report to the MCLE Board the correct attendance credit for each lawyer. Sponsors must submit attendance reports to the MCLE Board not later than 30 days after conclusion of the program.

For pre-recorded A/V (self-study) programs, although the sponsor should apply for accreditation, lawyers need to report the credits earned for taking the course. If the program has been approved, you can simply add it to your roster and (a) indicate the date(s) you took the course, and (b) the number of credits you earned. 

To add an approved course to your roster, follow the procedures below. 

    • Go to the "mywsba" website at www.mywsba.org/
    • Click "Login" in the top right corner of the screen, and log in.
    • Click on the "MCLE" link on the left side on your My Profile page.
    • Click on "Add Activity." Search to find the approved course in our system.  (See search suggestions on the screen.)

** If you already know the Activity ID number for the course, you need only enter that information on the search screen.
** If you do not know the Activity ID number, you will need to do a search to see if a Form 1 has been approved for the course.
** "Add Approved Activities" lists can be sorted, by clicking on the column headings, to make finding a course easier.

    • Locate the approved course (activity) on the list and click on the Activity ID link to add it to your roster.
    • For live courses, correct the number of credits earned, if needed.
    • For A/V courses, (1) indicate the date(s) you took the course, and (2) the number of credits you earned.
    • Click the "Add Activity" Button.
    • If you were not able to find the Form 1 for the course, click the New Live Activity Form 1 or New A/V Activity Form 1 button on the search results screen, fill out the form, and submit the course for accreditation review. Form 1 applications must include a detailed agenda of the activity, including the start and end times for each session and break.  Without a detailed agenda, no credit can be granted.

One (1) MCLE credit may be claimed for each 60 minutes of participation in an accredited activity. Time spent on course registration, introductions, breaks, and business meetings are not included in activity accreditation and may not be counted. Bar members are responsible for making appropriate adjustments to their records when the actual time spent in an accredited activity is less than the maximum approved credit-hours. Adjustments must also be made for late arrival, early departure or other periods of absence or non-participation.

    • You can Edit or Delete any activity on your Current Reporting Period roster by clicking on the hyperlink to the right of an activity.
    • Your online CLE credit roster is provided only for your convenience and is not an official record. At the end of your reporting period you must certify your credits with the online or paper CLE Certification (C2) form to meet Supreme Court MCLE compliance requirements. 
    • A "Certificate of Attendance" or other sponsor-provided certification is not sufficient to receive course credit.
